Rockstar Games’ parent company, Take-Two, has published updated sales figures for Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption II, and both games are still selling well. GTA V has now sold a staggering 160 million copies since its original release in 2013, according to Take-most Two’s recent results report. Meanwhile, the entire franchise has sold over 370 million units.
Take-Two bragged that GTA V sold $1 billion in retail faster than any other entertainment release in history, be it in gaming or any other business. It’s also the best-selling game in the United States in terms of both unit and dollar sales over the last decade.
GTA V will continue to expand, as Rockstar will release the game on March 15 on the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. Rockstar has recently begun to detail what fans can expect from the upcoming edition, which includes support for 4K/60fps.
The popularity of GTA V is due in part to the base game. GTA Online, the game’s popular and lucrative online mode, is still thriving, according to Take-Two, and one of the reasons for its continued success is Rockstar’s commitment to continually update the game to keep things fresh.
On March 15, a standalone edition of GTA Online will be released for the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation fans will be able to download it for free for the first three months.
During the call, Take-Two also revealed that Rockstar’s other major game, Red Dead Redemption II, has sold nearly 43 million copies. The entire series has sold 65 million copies, with the first Red Dead Redemption selling roughly 22 million.
